Boston Redevelopment Authority is Changing its Name

Back Bay from EsplanadeThe almost 60-year-old Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA)will changeits name next Tuesday, a WBUR article reported yesterday.The shift to the name of Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) is meant to more accurately describe the agency's function.Aware that it haddeveloped a less than favorable reputation, the BRA wantsdialogue with city residents and neighborhoodsto bepart of its planning process. Agency director Brian Goldenhopes the rebranding will lead to stronger public support and approval:

There are still far too many people, far too many community organizations that view the organization negatively, and we think that by emphasizing planning, by being in the neighborhoods talking about planning, receiving meaningful input from the people of Boston, and adopting planning documents that can accommodate quality future development, we will have greater public support, greater legitimacy and greater credibility, Golden said.
